Hey y’all ! Today we reached 5k followers on our Instagram. ( How awesome is that ?! ) I have only y’all to thank ! The fact that 5k of you care to know what we’re doing on a daily basis is mind blowing to me. The fact that you all choose to take time out of your busy life to comment, like , or even share on our Instagram is just … wow!… I have no words… you are all way too kind.
So since so many of you liked our picture on Instagram of our Santa mugs I thought I’d let you in on a little budget friendly secret…..
I know you have all seen many inspiration pictures of the pottery barn santa mugs floating around over the past few years. ( They are so beautiful! ) This year , if you don’t already know , we are listing our home in January and good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, we will be buying , flipping , and moving into an RV. With that being said , our Christmas decor this year is very minimal. Most of our decor we decided to donate and the small amount that we do have left we have already packed away. Even in the home that we will be building we plan to take a very minimal approach to decorating so boxes on boxes of stored Christmas decor just isn’t necessary. So back to the cute little Santa’s…. without unpacking the boxes we are keeping and without spending much money ( every penny is going to building right now ) I wanted to recreate the look of the pottery barn and vintage Santa mugs. Would you believe me if I told you I only spent $5 TOTAL on 5 mugs?! Well you should because I found these babies at none other than the DOLLAR TREE !!! Can you believe it ?!
On my Dollar Tree run I also picked up a couple of Christmas serving treys, the cutest Santa ornaments, candy canes to decorate our tree (since we’re skipping the ornaments too this year) , and these gold bells that I sanded to look vintage and tied to some twine to create simple garland. It’s amazing all of the things we can create without breaking the bank !
Many of you asked about our Santa mugs so I thought I’d let you in on our secret here on the blog first! If you decide to re-create this dollar tree, Santa mug look we would LOVE to see it and share it on our Instagram ! Just use the hashtag #TGOBmademedoit .
Love always , Savannah
